“There are no borders in bonsai. The dove of peace flies to palace as to humble house, to young as to old, to rich and poor. So does the spirit of bonsai.”
― John Yoshio Naka
Our doves are loving the warm December weather

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
― Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom
The great man himself may have disappeared from our horizons , but his words and energy live on with the legacy he left behind .
There is a saying on a gravestone in Charlton cemetery which reads "Elevated to a higher sphere of helpfulness"
Wind is strong this morning , hope everyone is careful out there today
What we perceive is dependant on our state of mind .As the weather cools with the talk of snow and gales, it is a great thing we can remember the saying above and others like it .
Heartfelt truth , spoken earnestly and with love injects positivity into the cosmos
Busy couple of days ahead , but we have positive intentions behind every task . Here are the alpacas in our labyrinth
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
Thinking a lot about the changes we have made here in the 16 months since we became custodians. So very much to be grateful for and so much enthusiasm to achieve more since attending the Caroline Myss workshop at Findhorn last weekend.
It is hard to recall how the walkway was back in April we have the pictures to remind us .
Where there is a will there is a way ,it starts with a grateful and open heart and clear intentions and somehow the impossible happens.
“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
From an Irish headstone”
A friend had her dog die suddenly whilst she was overseas helping others. I for one know what a hole, a loss of such a companion can feel like. I also know that once we accept it the hole is filled from the eternal well and we can once again experience the flow at a deeper level.
For one of our doggie companions a visit to the vets on Monday has been scheduled in order that his constant attention of Lillie will calm down and allow the bond they have to deepen without a young pups desire getting in the way!!!!
Our home gets lovelier by the day , the changing seasons keep it really interesting , the dogs are glad to be back , lovely to snuggle up to a fire in the lounge
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
Had a great 10 hour car journey down from Inverness to West Wales today , Westmorland Farm Shops on the M6 are the best services we have ever stopped at , good wholesome nourishing food and an amazing outlook. Will visit them again if we have the chance .
Just come back from an amazing time at Findhorn with Caroline Myss and some incredible people .
We are accumulating loads of experience travelling from Wales to Inverness via Surrey and Kent ! , have to say am very impressed with our fiat 500L and the fuel consumption
Solar panels 1.907 mwh produced to date 4.7 kwh produced today , the fire continues to provide heating and hot water.
